Anything that can destroy water solenoids in a short amount of time?

Recommended Posts

I replaced a whirlpool dual solenoid recently because it was dripping water.  It had lasted about 3 years with no issues.

 

The new replacement however only lasted about 2 days (otherwise working perfectly) and now the ice side is completely inoperable.  I tested it on my multimeter for ohms and it failed, and I jumpered the ice maker and nothing.  I put the old one back on and it works.

 

Anything that could be drastically reducing its life that I should know of?

no model # or serial # to even know the break down of this fridge  ????? ,    Where did you observe the water  dripping from,  the dispenser water line ?????  ,   Did you replace the water valve with an after market part ????    Remember with the door switch open . no power to ice maker.  Door switch needs to be closed while testing.
